intro

einLab are Elia Gurna and Ben Lam, a poetry & sound artist team based in Los Angeles, CA and New York City. Visual artists with backgrounds in literature and music, they began collaborating in 2002.

Their sound pieces have been featured in such exhibitions and programs as Windows on Main Street at the Howland Public Library and Flow: Navigating the Super Paradigm at Collaborative Concepts, both in Beacon; Cityscapes: Urban Poetry Mass at the Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, where they were also broadcast on CBC Radio; Queens International 2004 at the Queens Museum of Art in New York; Collaboration 1 at the Center For Emerging Visual Artists in Philadelphia; and Arts Express on WBAI.

einLab has also contributed media-specific interventions to a series produced by Vienna’s museum in progress, appearing in the Austrian daily newspaper der Standard’s New York Times supplement, and Art in General & e-flux’s Arts & Leisure in New York. Most recently, they have adapted their sound pieces to a live medium, with performances at the Queens Museum of Art, beacon artist union, WKCR’s Live Constructions, ez loft, and chashama’s 44th Street gallery.
